Bummer...so pretty in pictures...

This dress was so beautiful in the pictures and catalog. I was so excited to get it but the fit was way off! In the other Boden dresses I've ordered a size 8 has fit perfectly. This dress was really large in the bust and the waist was about 6 inches too big! I thought a nice wide belt would help cinch it up but that only added volume to the bust portion of the dress. It felt like wearing a tent. I am returning it and going to try a couple of sizes smaller. I ordered the Broderie Pointe dress with this dress (in the same size 8) and the Broderie fit perfectly. I am not sure why this dress is so large.

    This dress is so lovely and happy. I got it in the size 10 long and it is perfect on my 5'9" pear frame. The blue is just beautiful and the shape is very flattering I think. I will wear this summer, spring and maybe into the fall with tights and boots.

    Great dress!

      The colors on this dress are beautiful and the design is very nice. This would make a great casual dress for summer. It fits true to size, compared with other Boden purchases. Alas, I looked a bit too wide in it and it's going back; the pattern probably didn't help.

          The instant I put this dress on I loved everything about it - the fit, the feel and the way it moved. I bought the ivory with blue dots. Then after trying it on, I bought the one in blue. I'm 5'11 and slim, so I purchased the 6L. The length is perfect. My blue patent belt goes with it perfectly. I can't help but think this classic, vintage-looking dress would also look adorable in red (hint, hint).

            This dress is of great quality, it fits really nice, I love the flowy skirt bottow, and, of course the timeless polka dot pattern that I got. The overall fit it perfect. Maybe I'm biased a bit when it comes to Boden, but so far I have been greatly satisfied with the fit, quality, and overall style of Boden. Glad I discovered it, my closed is definitely reaping benefits! =)

                Overall it's a nice dress. The only thing I found is the seam is really loose above the zip. I contacted the customer service and they send me antother one, it's about the same, only slightly better. The quality does not meet the price but the design and material are all good.

                  I loved this dress when I saw it on-line. Unfortunately it just didn't look great on me. Specifically I didn't care for the way it laid near my stomach. I am 6' tall, 149lbs, athletic build. It was a little loose in the chest as well. It felt like it would have been extremely comfortable to wear. The colors were beautiful and the fabric was nice and light. I don't think it was a design flaw... I just don't think it suited my body type.

                    While this dress did not work for my body type, it looked great on my sister-in-law who has a slender build. I love the polka dotted pattern and the smooth cotton texture of the material, enhancing the quality look of this dress.
